Crypto Market Daily Highlights – MATIC and XRP Slide in FTX Woes


Key Insights:

  • It was a bearish Sunday session for the crypto top ten, with MATIC and XRP leading the way down.
  • Contagion fear stemming from the collapse of FTX continued to weigh on investor sentiment.
  • The crypto market cap fell by $20.6 billion to end the day at $782.5 billion.

It was a bearish Sunday session for the crypto top ten. MATIC and XRP led the way down, with BTC falling for the seventh session in eight. Notably, BTC ended the day at sub-$17,000 for the third time since 2020.

FTX updates continued to impact investor sentiment, with news of an FTX hack adding further downward price pressure.

For a market looking to restore confidence, reports of sending 320,000 ETH to the wrong wallet address added to the bearish mood. CEO Kris Marszalek addressed the issue on Twitter, saying,

“The ETH transfers that generated so much FUD & speculation on Twitter today were made over three weeks ago, on October 21st to’s whitelisted corporate account at”

Kris went on to say,

“In this particular case, the whitelisted address belonged to one of our corporate accounts in a third-party exchange instead of our cold wallet. We have since strengthened our process and systems to better manage these internal transfers.”

The CEO added,

“That’s all there is to it. All our systems are operating normally.”

This morning, the crypto market was back in negative territory as contagion fear continued to grip the market. Contagion fear will likely lead to a further decoupling from the NASDAQ Composite Index.
